I owned a 05 Merc van for light building work and like most guys got sucked in by good looks but never again!!
Endless problems.

Yes it really does chew up the outer edge of front tyres very very fast,both electric windows failed and expensive to fix,alternator had to be replaced twice within 3yrs, engine bonnet release never worked, rear suspension springs had to be replaced along with a clunking noise from the front suspension and lots of road noise.Gearbox like and old tractor clunked into 2nd gear, nice having the 6 speed box though.

Paint quality very poor and rust started to show. Had major problems with keys not starting the vehicle took 3 weeks to get sorted with ignition sensors being pulled apart,keys re coded etc,more $$$
Plastic outside door protectors fell off I glued them back on, plastic headlight lenses crazed badly from sun, steering wheel outer broke down due to heat/sun.Cup holders broke very early on, radiator hose fell off while driving emptied out water, lucky I had tools onboard and refixed hose back tight. Way too much plastic even plastic front guards.

Now good things,impressive fuel economy, plenty of torque,6 speed gear box, looks good and that's about all.

Now have a Hyundai i load CDI very pleased much much better build quality and no problems.
